There is a lot of bias in SpeakEasy and is one of the reasons I no longer post there very much.

but my "worry" is more why they would lock that thread/question and not the other one. I have no problem with the forum locking a thread if I only know why they do it.
I too, am thinking about not participating anymore if they are going to lock threads for no reason.

Why not email him through his profile? That way you would know why he hasn't posted in 7 days. Maybe on vacation, it is that time of year:)

You are absolutely right Glenda. The problem I find now is WHY the thread was locked.

I didn't see anything wrong either. Did maybe someone reply with a nasty comment and it was deleted before you saw it? And the Mods were just playing safe and locking it to stop anything further?

That could be an explanation Glenda

but it was just minutes before they locked it. I find it very strange. Hopefully a moderator will be able to explain why it was locked.

And one thing is that they unlocked it now and another very different that they DID lock it in the first place. And that's what I wonder about. WHY? Why would they lock it in the first place? It would be nice to have a mod explaining that.

use Dan's profile to write to him and ask him personally if he was ok, there was no reason to publicly post in the forums about it. This is precisely why it was locked in the first place. Moderators don't explain about members unless there is a personal reason to do so, such as MarciaB's recent tragedy.

As for unlocking it, I haven't got a clue...I don't know which Moderator made that decision...but I wouldn't have.

When Angeline asked about jonah, it was because he doesn't have his profile listed with it, and because of the dangerous area he lives in, and she posted it directly to him.
